Skeletonwitch is an American metal outfit based out of Athens, Ohio. Formed in 2003, the four-piece group has since firmly established itself within the extreme metal community with its heavy hybrid of thrash and blackened death metal. In 2008, Skeletonwitch was asked to be a part of Blackest of the Black, a tour founded by Glen Danzig, the former Misfits singer. Being a part of such a high-profile tour paid dividends for the band, as its 2009 album, Breathing the Fire, landed at #151 on the Billboard Top 200 chart upon its debut. Despite the relatively new success however, Skeletonwitch hasn't compromised its relentless style in the slightest.
